Hello I am new here. Long story short I have crashed my drone and repaired the gimbal. The repair went fine and everything looked good. But unfortunately the camera has an issue now where it will not calibrate right. The camera just keeps tilting itself to the left no matter what I do. I have re calibrated the compass and IMU and tried to calibrate the camera multiple times. During start up, it will go crazy and shake the camera but eventually stops. Also it is making a squeaking noise when the camera moves. image.jpg Thinking I just need a new gimbal but figured I would try here first. I will post a photo of how the camera is and try to post a video if I can. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

You need to download and install Python on a PC. Then got to github and download the DJI tools project.
You will need the correct code
You run the JointCoarse command which searches for the extreme movements of the gimbal and centres it.
You then run the LinearHall command which centres within the new boundaries and updates the gimbal firmware.
I don't think it will "fix a squeaking noise and camera shake" but that may drop out in the wash.

Just noticed that you have not said that you have re calibrated the gimbal. Try that first.
Go4App click the controller icon top right. Remote controller settings
click the camera icon with the bar on top
click gimbal auto calibration and/or adjust the gimbal.

Thanks for the reply. I will look into that. I also ordered a new gimbal just in case.
